MIJ RG550 - arm broke off in Edge
Hi, I am new here. Great site.
As the title suggests, I was careless last night and broke the arm off inside the socket of my Edge trem while trying to get enough slack in the strings to pull my pickguard out. Rather stupid as I was in a rush to get something done and took a shortcut.
Is there a way to take off the socket assembly and replace it and the arm? Am I stuck drilling it out? The knife edges seem in good shape but I think there is a sleeve or something missing from one of the posts ( on the arm side) because I can see threads on one post but not the other so if having to replace the entire trem is the only option I am ok with that - but hate to have to spend the $$ I see them going for.
Any advise on how to fix this would be hugely appreciated. I am starting to work on my own gear so forgive me if some of these questions are very basic.
